Lifelong Newcastle fan and blogger Colin Harrison reports back on making the mammoth journey from the North East to the South West to complete his 92. The day had arrived for me to complete my tour of the 92 grounds. From my first ever match as a schoolboy, watching my beloved Newcastle United at St James Park to the other St James Park, Exeter. It wasn’t my 92nd league ground though but my 109th. One night in our local, we were discussing the journey to which my mate David said he would drive us all to Exeter in his… Read more »

Eager to reach the magical 92 mark before the seasons end Blogger Michael Pilcher was heading North again. Blundell Park was the destination as the Gills fan took the opportunity to join some travelling Exeter fans on the journey to Cleethorpes. Ground 88/92: Blundell Park, Grimsby Grimsby Town 0 – 3 Exeter City 14/01/2017 There was something about Grimsby that had previously put me off going.

Sunderland Stadium of Light

The domestic cup competitions are a great way for fans doing the 92 to tick off new grounds otherwise not on their radar. A tie in the North East caught blogger Michael Pilcher’s eye as he made the gargantuan trip to Wearside. Ground: Stadium of Light (73/92) Game: Sunderland 6 – 3 Exeter City Date: 24/08/2015 I changed jobs just over a year ago, and in my new department I was pleased to find myself working alongside another individual that was attempting to do the 92.

Blogger Tim Dove makes the long journey down to St James Park Exeter to take his total doing the 92 up to 90 as the curtain comes down on the Football League season. Ground: St James Park 90/92 Game: Exeter City 2-1 Dagenham & Redbridge Date: 02/05/2015 Thoughts on the ground: There’s a real mix to St James Park as is common with other clubs in the lower divisions who haven’t moved to new stadia recently.
